**Apparently Blogger hates me and didn't want you guys to read a good portion of my previous post. I fixed it, kind of. Here's the text that was messed up in the previous post. You'll have to scroll down if you want to see the pictures :)**
I know I promised you guys pictures of my CSA box. Well, here they
are, FINALLY. A week late. Sorry. I've been trying to get my
emotional crap under control. I'm adjusting to the summer schedule with all 3
kids home. Plus, we're potty training (which is going really well, it's
just... potty training. LOL. Moms will understand that
I had a mini meltdown while out to dinner with my husband on Monday. To be
honest, I'm feeling better post-meltdown. Apparently I was holding onto
some stuff and hadn't acknowledged it. It felt good to let it out.
It was slightly embarrassing to break down in tears in a restaurant, but I
don't think anyone noticed...
So, the month of May was pretty bad for me. I made a lot of
nutritionally poor choices. The scale is up, which is a direct reflection
of the choices I made. Kristen at Change
of Pace is doing another Whole30 in June. I hadn't planned on doing
another Whole30 for a while, but after some analysis of my behaviors during my
April Whole30, I decided to do another, with the concentration on correcting
food behaviors that are issues for me. Mostly, I didn't correct my food
issues last time, I just replaced the foods I was using to comfort eat.
Instead of eating 4 pieces of buttered bread, I ate large bowls of dried fruit
& nuts. Or nut butters by the spoonful. Overeating is still
overeating, no matter what the food choice. I need to focus on changing my responses.
I really like the way I feel when I eat whole foods. I look and feel
better. I'm going to spend June focusing on making good food decisions,
based on hunger, not emotions. If I need to chew gum to help me through
some of those phases, I will. I'm not going to freak out if my husband
marinates our steaks in beer. I'm going to keep my green smoothies (dairy
free). June's Whole30 will be about improving habits and recognizing
sub-par behaviors. Positive steps forward.
